Digital Photography by Dale May – LEGO WARS

“The LEGO WARS series is a study of popular culture, commercial advertising and nostalgia. As an adult,Dale May revisits these tiny plastic Lego figures and photographs them in a way that returns them to the epic importance they once had as a child, reminding us why we needed to collect every single piece.  Iconic, nostalgic, yet timeless, the artist bring a new look to a subject that’s common place. Dale leaves nothing to chance, not only is the work impeccably crafted and well thought out but the material he has chosen to produce the Lego Wars series was no accident. Dale felt that the entire piece of art should resemble the high polished glossiness of the subject itself.Mounted with an archival acrylic front and backed with aluminum dibond, the work is given a look not unlike the plastic Star Wars Lego figure or something from Darth Vader’s living room. Once made from molded plastic, standing just over an inch and a half and in danger of being stepped on, these characters now stand tall, speak to us and demand attention! ”
